Coated steel wire seating shell in combination with a steel frame in Eiffeltower shape: this is the much sought after Wire Chair DKR, designed by Charles & Ray Eames for Vitra in 1951.
A classic in airy design
For the Wire Chair DKR, Charles & Ray Eames took over the shape of the seating shell from the Eames Plastic Side Chair, but the material selection gave it a completely different feel and radiance.
The design chair, with its light aesthetics, is both airy and light as well as industrial. Industrial design is the keyword. And this is on the rise again in the design world: the iconic Wire Chairs celebrate their second spring and delight design lovers from all over the world.
Indoor vs. Outdoor
The chair, completely made of steel, can be ordered here in four different designs in our online shop: a glossy chrome version, which is only suitable for indoor use as well as three different colour powder coatings. The powder-coated versions are even suitable for outdoor use - thus the Wire Chair DKR becomes a garden chair!
Of course, all Wire chairs look great in interior spaces - both in private homes and in public areas. The iconic Wire Chair DKR is particularly suitable for conference and meeting rooms of all kinds.
Vitra & Environment
Vitra has always placed great emphasis on the environmental compatibility of its products. First is the fact that Vitra designer furniture is extremely durable. This is due, on the one hand, to the careful and resource-conserving selection of materials and, on the other hand, to the timeless design, which will not go out of fashion for coming decades.
The Wire Chair, for example, consists mainly of steel, which can be completely melted and recycled after the end of the product life cycle.
The World of Wire Chairs
Here in our online shop you can order not only the Wire Chair DKR with the Eiffeltower frame, but many other designs by Charles & Ray Eames.
There are the Wire Chair DKR with seat cushion or original bikini seat and back cover. Also other bases are available: a four-legged steel frame or a wooden support. Order the original Wirechair classic from Vitra right here in our online shop!
Additional information: since the body height of mankind has increased since the 1950s, Vitra's Wire Chairs have a standard seat height of 43 cm (previously: 41.5 cm)
